Banco Volkswagen do Brasil’s strategy was to stimulate sales by offering a new Operational Leasing and Fleet Management (OLFM) product to the Brazilian market.
To help with this unique project, it needed an experienced and trusted IT partner. It chose Solifi (formerly White Clarke Group), a company with both a successful global fleet-leasing project track record and experience in the Brazilian marketplace.
It is the insight and drive of Michael Ferreira, Head of Fleet Management and Corporate Services VWFS Brazil, that have taken the project from the original idea to completion. He said, “The Latin American region is a huge market, with more than 3.5 million new-vehicle sales each year. Solifi has successfully designed and developed the new turnkey OLFM Contract Management System for this sophisticated and fast-growing market.”
The project took 18 months, which allowed Banco Volkswagen do Brasil to start providing the leasing product to its fleet customers in June 2013.
Ferreira added, “Operational Leasing and Fleet Management is a new financial concept for OEMs in the Brazilian automotive finance market. Banco Volkswagen is the first automotive company in the Brazilian market to launch Operational Leasing fully integrated with Fleet Management Products and Services.”
